    as there are loads of people that make movies. Sometimes Hollywood is used a bit to broadly, but in the studio structure it has always been varying degrees of corrupt.

    Not always illegally corrupt, but very shady. And more than a few are illegally corrupt.

    I think politics is much worse. Particularly as you go up the later. I remember a political science professor once saying something along the lines of you have to be power hungry and obsessed to varying degrees to want to run for federal office. Or state office in many cases. That leads to corruption.

    Varying levels, but it is there. I am sure that in both situations there are good people involved though.




Sure, but again at different levels. Find any group of wealthy people and they are going to have some political involvement. Hollywood is not different than any other industry in that way.

Nor is that always a bad thing. It can be but not always.I feel Hollywood as a whole has also been an easy scapegoat for politicians too. Mostly for unjustified attacks, because they had their own mega phone.

Why most American's tend to care is another matter. Most politicians are not sure what they are talking about. And reality tv stars in particular are not sources of policy knowledge.
